: we talk a lot about what had been going on for the 2 1/2 weeks since the obama administration finally said it was a preplanned terrorist attack. we were wondering who was going to tate fall. james clapper, director of national intelligence, he seems like he's going to be the scapegoat. he's saying maybe we didn't tell the white house in time, maybe they didn't know. take a listen to him a couple years ago. remember this bumbling statement he had here? watch. >> how serious is it? any implication that it was coming here and these are things they have seen were coming here director clapper? i was a little surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh, i'm sorry. i didn't. >> eric: that was diane sawyer doing an interview as there were people being arrested in for terrorism, he had no idea. >> it's almost as if there was picture and picture. he hadn't been briefed well. that was classic, also -- rare because we haven't had the terrorist attacks that we thought we could have had because we have these protocols put in place after 9-11. jim clapper, across the board from w
your fear of the word "terrorism." obama, the white house, his whole foreign policy team, they're dealing with a completely bizarre scandal related to the attacks in benghazi, driven by the fact that they spent a week after they knew this was probably a terrorist attack insisting that it was all about an anti-muslim voe and had very little to do with terror. i'm not sure what their theory is. it's part of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in sout

coming up next week, this could be explosive. >> reporter: it could be a big deal. absolutely right, elizabeth. after the attack in benghazi, one of the big questions is, did the obama administration recognize the deteriorating security situation in libya? and did they do everything to protect personnel in that country? abc news has obtained this e-mail from the security department in may. that a request for a security support team, about 16 special forces soldiers, to keep a small airplane, a dc-3, to get around more easily, especially with all of the weapons, was rejected, elizabeth. >> how is the state department reacted to whether or not proper security and teams were given to the state department in libya? >> reporter: the state department says it was not a big deal. commercial flights were available at the time. and it says there's no evidence that the absence of this airplane had any affect on what happened in september. but the house, which will be holding hearings, says it's part of a pattern of officials in washington, denying requests from ambassador stevens and others in
